SHRM Fellowships

Seize the opportunity to carve your place in a Hospitality Career

This SHRM fellowship program consists of the School of Hotel and Restaurant Management partnering with hospitality employers to provide SHRM students who have 2-3 academic years before graduation a paid opportunity to work 3 terms. The student will progressively develop company knowledge, depth in skills sets and leadership/supervisory learning. This program will help to create your professional portfolio. The goal is to provide employers the opportunity to groom selected participants for a supervisory/management position fulltime and for graduates to obtain fulltime career employment.
